to is the guy sort of out of focus on the left-hand side of the photo that is john dingell, congressman john dingell of dearborn, michigan. congressman dingle is 86 years old. he is in his 30th term in congress. a few months into this term for him in june of this year, he will become the longest serving member of congress in american history. nobody since the dawn of the republic will have served as much time in congress as john dingell as of this june. john dingell is a democrat. he has been his entire career as far as i know. he is also a staunch proponent of gun rights. he is a former board member of the national rifle association. now what is going on in this photo from the vice president's office today is that john dingell is speaking to this whole group of cabinet officials and the vice president himself and his fellow house democrats, and he is speaking to them as one of the 12 vice-chairman of the democrats gun violence prevention task force in the house. this group was set up by nancy pelosi last month to be the voice of congressional democrats on reform. and it te

hit most directly. although the u.s. senate acted last month on sandy relief, it has taken john boehner's republican-controlled house 78 days since the storm to pass this bill responding to the storm. in the end, on the republican side, it ended up being a grudging vote for sandy relief. republicans voted against sandy relief by a 3-1 margin. the bill was only able to pass because a minority of republicans joined with democrats to get it done in the house. even though the senate already passed its version of hurricane sandy relief last year, last month, the senate bill has to be redone because it took the house so long to get their side of it done. the senate is expected to get their side done again shortly. and then the president says he will sign the measure into law. >>> and tonight, in further breaking news, as slow as house republicans were to act in response to hurricane sandy, tonight's other major news is about how fast new york state was able to move to respond to a different kind of disaster. tonight one month and one day after the mass shooting at sandy hook elementar

call this plan r for run away. but we know that john boehner often has had trouble with his various plans. plan b most notoriously, getting them approved, accepted and passed by his own house republicans. and cantor made a very declarative statement today. we're going to bring this to a vote, and when you do that, usually you think you have the votes, but immediately there were grumblings that some house republicans will go along with this i'm not sure that democrats will, too. so it remains to be seen whether or not john boehner and cantor can get passed what they want to do, and, then again this is just another three-month extension. now the good news for the vix watchers out there is that this puts it past, you know, the coming showdowns on sequestration and the cr, all washington terms involving the budget, which will all kind of happen in march. so this is one cliff that may not happen while two other cliffs are underway. three months from now, depending what happens with those cliffs and what happens with the economy, the house republicans, the tea partiers and the let's blow

washington. you know the basics of what happened today. church service at st. john's house near the white house. the president goes from the white house then to the capitol, then he is sworn in at the capitol on the west front. and that is the spot from which president obama today delivered his second inaugural address. well will have much more on all of that coming up this hour. but here is the moment from today. the moment that i want to show you was not part of the official program. it was not on anybody's schedule. we did not know it was coming, and it was not spoken into any microphone. so i'm just going to play this for you for a second. but notice it's going to be a little weirder than usually expect on cable. there is no official sound here. so it's going to be quiet for just a second. but just watch. watch the president. this is after he had just finished his inaugural address. there had been the poem and the benediction and the national anthem. and he and everybody else in the presidential inauguration platform are leaving to file back into the capitol. and at that moment, the p

particularly to john roberts. i was baffled, i think, as many were by roberts sort of from the rights point of view caving on so-called obama care. and i've always felt as i think many observers do that he has, like the president, an eye on history and his role on it and his stature within it. and everything thinks that the same-sex marriage decision is going to come down to anthony kennedy, a swing justice, who has a good record on gay civil rights issues. but i wonder if roberts couldn't be pushed a bit. does he really want to be on the wrong side of history? and by framing it as history, putting it as gay civil rights as part of the big american historical narrative, it's a little bit of an elbow or whatever in the ribs. and i wonder, really, whether roberts might not be won over since clearly in the case of obama care, it wasn't just about the law, because his legal argument really barely made sense. even if you're in favor as i was of obama care being upheld. >> so meaning that you think that justice roberts had an eye on the historical impact of the decision, more than the legal parti
